    Water fill up question

    Call and ask,.. I filled my 32’X16’X54” for about $40 with city water, much cheaper than paying to haul water in.

    New above ground pool question

    Welcome!! The corners are designed to “float”. I installed a 32X16X54” this summer, it does the same thing. It allows for the sides to rock a bit when there is a lot of splashing in the pool! Good luck and enjoy!

    Installation- Intex Above Ground

    Hi Sarah,..You have come to the right place,. These folks are awesome! I just recently installed my Intex 32X16X52 pool. First of all make sure your ground is level. It Must be level. Make sure each paver is level. The foam board that you were using is what I used. I used gorilla tape to tape...

    Well Crud

    It was actually about 1/4-1/2 inch lower!! Had three small children in the pool all day, lots of splashing, then noticed this after they were gone. Intex is sending me two new legs as I’m still in the 90 day warranty period. Ugghhhh,.. I have to start all over with salt, borax etc😢 I’m assuming...

    I’m using an LED pond light right now,.. because I had it. Pond supplies are less expensive than pool supplies.

    How to replace pool leg on intex 22x52 ultra frame?

    I have seen this method mentioned several times. I have two pavers that broke and one that the leg just slid off of. How exactly did you use this jack? Did you lift the top rail?

    Intex 16 by 32 corner joints

    Theses are floating corners, even when full they float. Not even sure why they are there. I can easily pull mine out. The only one that isn’t floating is the corner where my paver broke.

    Intex 16x32 pavers breaking

    Remember that the legs move out, away from the pool sides as the pool fills!

    Intex 16x32 pavers breaking

    Two of mine broke as well! I think I’m only about 3/4 inch off, so I haven’t drained mine.

    Added salt, CYA, chlorine, now SWG

    I think I added the right amount of CYA,..put it in a cheese cloth and hung it in front of my intake. It took several bundles and lots of squeezing, the last was dissolved about 0730 this am. It rained all day Sunday and Monday :) May get in tonight!!

    Added salt, CYA, chlorine, now SWG

    Thank you! Is there a relationship between my CYA and pH? I will add some muriatic acid per pool math. Does anyone know how to reset the targets on the pool math app?

    Muddy Mess - Intex 32ft x 16ft x 4.3ft rectagular 1st pool area leveling fun

    the "gravel" that you see is supposed to be the base used for paving roads, I was told it was "self locking". It did level well. Not sure I would choose it again, because it is hard to walk on. I then placed the tarp that came with the pool, then 1/2" foam insulation boards, then a gorilla...

    Leveling pavers with a transit

    Thanks everyone!! The ground was leveled for me before I put the padding and the pool up. I just used the transit to check the ground where I’m placing the pavers,.. it is within 1/2 inch all the way around. I will make the pavers even with the ground and re check. I read that the leg supports...

    Leveling pavers with a transit

    Ok,.. 32x16x52 pool is up,. Ground was leveled, pool tarp down, 1/2” foam board, then gorilla pad. I have 12x12 concrete pavers for each leg support. I’m picking up a transit in the morning. Should I start with the lowest pavers as level and bring the others down? I’m not real sure how to use...

    Sand with foam to help level?

    Thanks for the quick reply!! I had to Google gorilla pad. This looks like a replacement for the foam board? If this will work, it sounds much easier and more budget friendly.

    Sand with foam to help level?

    Love this sharing of information!! I would like to ask about the sand. Is it vital? Recommended? My 32' X 16' X 52" pool will be here in about 7 days. I'm new to this and don't want to make a mistake (your photo's are making me nervous). My uneducated plan is to have someone dig and level...
